9780099415237: Other Times

At the start of the war in 1939 James Bevan is a junior officer approaching middle-age, attached to a small anti-aircraft unit on the south coast.

Abandoned by his wife, the soldiers he command are his family: Bairnsfather, whose sexual encounters with his girl friend Muriel take place in an air-raid shelter; Cartwright, trying to keep two women on his gunner's pay of a shilling a day; Hignet, cosily educating himself in the orderly room. It is a rude awakening when they are called upon for the real war.

Hugely absorbing, rich and rewarding, Other Times brims with history and experience, love, sorrow and humour.

Review:

"A tour de force of imagination and storytelling... I cannot recommend it highly enough" ( Daily Mail)

"Thomas has the rare ability to recreate the very sounds and smells and atmosphere of a long-lost world... One of the most satisfying reads in years" ( Daily Mail)

"When it comes to telling a thoroughly good tale, dew do it better than former Barnardo boy Leslie Thomas... a surefire winner" ( Yorkshire Post)

"Thomas, as ever, tells a cracking yarn" ( Mail on Sunday)

Book Description:

There are those who will think of this story as a tale from history; to others it will seem that it happened only yesterday
